US residential solar services provider OneRoof Energy has announced that it is to sell 19.8MW of its solar project assets in the aggregate to continue its Solar 2.0 national growth strategy.
The sale is expected to generate up to US$61 million; with US$19 million funded as of today, the remainder is expected to be funded throughout September due to projects going through the final stages of construction.
OneRoof, who recently secured US$50 million from Black Coral to finance new solar ventures, expects to use the proceeds from this sale to repay outstanding amounts under its construction loan facility, and to pay outstanding development and installation costs incurred related to the projects under development.
"The company's model is to both own residential solar assets, as well as sell assets to third party investors, depending upon market and other conditions at the time,”said David Field, president and CEO of the company. “This sale is consistent with our current plan to utilize capital to support strategic growth under our Solar 2.0 model. As previously announced, the company is accelerating its efforts to partner with energy retailers and other home consumer service providers to complement their existing product lines with turnkey solar solutions."
OneRoof announced in April that it completed the final tranche of a previously committed financing in the principal amount of US$20 million to Black Coral Capital which will be used for general working capital purposes, as well as investment in solar projects.
Solar Media’s Energy Storage Summit Americas has arrived in Fort Lauderdale to provide a platform for this next step in renewable energy industry. The energy storage market and development brings as many challenges as it does advancements, with a myriad of technologies, capacities, functions, and lifespans. With most projects still in development and technologies with sparse track records, knowledge in this fledgling industry is invaluable. Investors, utilities, consumers, and all renewable energy participants have to not only understand the market, but be able comfortable enough to make the right investment in energy storage to not be left behind the curve. Our event is the platform for companies to bridge the gap between “future energy storage plans” and “installed energy storage”. Join us to discuss the latest news on standardization, comparing battery technologies, financing projects in different markets, resilient microgrids, and storage use for emergency response and aid, among many others. We will not only to educate and familiarize attendees on the capabilities and benefits of energy storage, but make the connections, and introductions, to accelerate energy storage development in North, Central, and South America.
